Very glad i got this card cause i was getting interferences with my onboard sound. Installation was a breeze with XP Pro SP2, sound is great, software is easy to use, and haven't had a problem in the 2 months i've been using it. Recommended.
got this card because i was wanting to finally be able to use the front audio jacks on my case and is very noticeably better sound than my Creative Audigy 2. though i just get it for change as i am a big fan of Creative sound cards and as opposed to what other say Creative drivers are flawless when it come to Vista.
I used to have the montego ddl from turtle beach but after upgrading to vista x64 i was having alot of problem so i decided to purchase this and i don't regret it. Driver support is great and they recently released drivers for win7. Have it hooked up to my receiver via optical for watching movies and the sound is great either through my speakers or headphones.
Really nice little card that I grabbed at 82$. It works flawlessly in XP and Vista 64. I don't think you need anything else. It render games, music and movies perfectly with an incredible clear sound. I always had creative products, but I gave this a chance and I am happy to have trust peoples overall feeling toward this card.
If you can find an Auzentech Forte low profile for 99$, grab it, but if you can't, get this card.
